How can I make a good buying decision that I will not regret about in the future?
It happens a lot: I come to a situation where I really want something but not sure if it'll be a good purchase, or alternatively want two or more different things and not sure which to buy.
There are also cases where I buy something and after sometime I realize it was a pretty dumb purchase.
I'm sure this happens to many people, maybe even to most people. How do I make a good decision that I will not regret about in one month or year?
Some examples for such situations:
- Should I buy a new smartphone or stay with my current?
- Do I really want to have a new dog/parrot?
- Do I really need a tablet or it's just a temporary excitement?
- What's better for me: expensive drums that will last long or cheap drums I'll have to replace if I continue drumming.
